I have set up a website on my raspberry pi for our local network. My parents are gonna be using it too so I want when they type for example "picam" in the browser that they get directed to the IP address.
Our router is a Fritz! Box 4040 DH and a good example for what I want is: when you type "fritz.box" in the browser you get redirected to the local website of the router.

Is there a way to do this with my pi, that I get automatically to the IP address? If you have questions any questions please ask.

Thanks for your time.

  • You could use a Python web-browser and edit the part where it loads a URL, for example, if a keyword is used, like this: github.com/gort818/Roksolana-WebBrowser Editing the code to handle keywords shouldn't be too hard.

I found a solution with mDNS. The website I used is the following: https://www.howtogeek.com/167190/how-and-why-to-assign-the-.local-domain-to-your-raspberry-pi/ It worked perfectly fine.
